Below are some quick FAQ's, but if you have any queries, please ask a member of IT & Technical Services.
How do I login to my phone?
Your number is not tied to a specific handset. If you are working in a different office/area, you can login to any phone and your number will then be reachable on that handset. Your phonebook, speed dials and features such as voicemail will all be there.
Press the key labelled Hot Desk.
The key labels will change - press the key next to Login.
Use the number pad on the phone to enter your extension number, e.g 3133, then press the key labelled OK
Enter your pass code (this was sent to you via IT Services)
How do I dial an outside line?
To dial an outside line, dial 9 followed by the phone number you want to ring, just as you did with your analogue phone.
How do I answer the phone on speaker rather than through the handset?
To answer your Mitel VoIP phone on speaker, press the Speaker button in the top row of buttons to the right of the handset. To end the call, press the Cancel button
How do I put a call on hold? How do I go back to the person I have put on hold?
To put a call on hold you can do one of the following:
Press the Mute button at the top right of your handset. This will mean the caller is still on the line but can't hear you.
Press the Call Hold button (the red button) to put the caller on hold - they will hear some waiting music. They will stay on hold for 30 seconds. If you have not taken them off hold, the line will start ringing again. You cannot receive any other calls while you have someone on hold.
To get your call back from being on hold, press the flashing line button on the very bottom of your display.
How do I transfer a call?
Press the Transfer button on your phone

If there is no answer, the line is busy, or the person at the other end doesn't want to take the call, press Cancel to go back to the caller.
